Richlowe, I agree building a good content rich site with relevant links is what is important. I know a lot of my visitors come because people tell friends about my site. But Google is the search engine that sends by far the most search engine type referrals so I want to keep that going good. I want to be able to reach folks who might not know about my site except through a search engine.
Since you have so much actual content and your links are referrals to other quilt sites I would think you would be ok with Google.
Marcia, >>your pages are individually done and on topic<< Does this mean links that are automatically generated in some way are more likely to be considered suspect by Google?
I read through the threads that Engine suggested. It looks like opinions are mixed as to whether a noindex tag should be used on link pages.

If you're annotating each of your links with a sentence or two of text, and if you aren't placing more than a couple of dozen links on a page, you shouldn't have a problem.
Yes, annej. Both from a search engine and linked-site standpoint, this would be better. Better still - include an on-topic text introduction on each link page, and a text description of each linked site.
Face it, a giant list of linked site names doesn't do anyone much good. If you want to provide something of value to your visitors and to the sites that link to you, add some organization that makes it easy to find the kind of site you are looking for.
